Importance of clean water

Water is a fundamental human need. Each individual on Earth requires 20 to 50 liters of clean, safe water a day for drinking, cooking, and keeping themselves clean.

Polluted water isn’t just dirty, it’s deadly. Around 1.8 million people die each year of diseases related to dirty water. Tens of millions of others are seriously sickened by a host of water-related ailments.

Education suffers when sick children miss school. Economic opportunities are lost to the impacts of rampant illness and the time-consuming processes of acquiring water where it is not readily available. Children and women bear the brunt of these burdens.

Water is obviously essential for hydration and for food production—but, also, sanitation is an important use of water. A lack of proper sanitation services not only breeds disease, it can rob people of their basic human dignity.

Information about water

In the UK our drinking water is of the highest standard, among the best in the world.
This does not mean that our responsibilities are ceased, protecting our resources, and our families from low quality water, remains of the highest importance.

Irrigation

Water-efficient irrigation methods using potable water are among the best ways of preserving water, and assuring its good use.

Chlorine

Chlorine is the most widely used disinfectant in the home. It is also disinfectant used by the water industry to maintain hygienic conditions within the public water supply network of pipes. At the very low levels used in drinking water it is perfectly safe.

Finding a plumber

When you are looking for a plumbing business, we recommend you select one which is an eligible member of an Approved Contractors’ Scheme, such as the WaterSafe or the Scheme.

Water hardness

Rain water is naturally soft but once it falls on the ground and percolates through rocks it picks up natural hardness minerals, such as calcium and magnesium. Depending on the local geology the hardness of the water supply will vary. The general pattern across the UK means that water supplies are hardest in the south and become softer moving north.
